It's from Tulimyrsky, along with a great cover of Back to North, originally by Merciless.

I agree that this is their best album.

I think 'Fade to Black' is the biggest standout on this 10/10 album.

Yep.

First thrash album I ever got back in late September 1984. Voted for ‘Fight fire with fire’ simply because I will never forget the moment I first heard it. Had no idea what I was hearing or what I was in for :o 8)

Gotta go with 'Fight Fire With Fire' on this one. That's the song that started it all for me, as a 12 year old just getting into more extreme forms of music. That machine gun main riff after the acoustic intro...it was a life altering moment. My favorite Metallica album, without question, and a Top 3 of all time for me.

Though, there's no wrong answer here. Yes, I love the FUCK out of 'Escape', too, and mad respect for the two people who voted for it.

It really speaks volumes to the quality of their early work when they've put out far more trash than quality material and they still get talked about constantly.

For years and years and years it was "Creeping Death" but I've really come to appreciate the title track.

Creeping Death, but I wish Trapped Under Ice would get more appreciation in general.

voted trapped.

Ask me tomorrow and it's a toss up between Fight, Ride, Escape and Trapped.
